Baden-Baden: double pleasure

Baden-Baden: double pleasure


I found happiness in Baden – Empress Elizabeth A. was born Princess Louise of Baden. Turgenev wrote here a novel “Smoke”, Dostoevsky addicted to roulette, Tolstoy smoke lost in the casino, and Gogol published in the local newspaper “Taras Bulba”. Come here today to put in order the body and soul.

Summer was stormy: a new job and a new novel on the nervous system affected is not the best way. By mid-autumn began insomnia and digestive problems, and the complexion restored only through foundation. The doctor said, needs rest.

I thought it’s time to Baden-Baden. Russian aristocrats used to go to the winter “on the water” – and the blues, and were rescued from the cold in the mild climate … They have, however, been available all winter, and I – week of vacation, so my spa course should be very intense. And possibly strictly individual: holistic spa programs I do not believe – and I always think that they include a lot of unnecessary procedures. In general, all agreed on the Brenners Park Hotel in Baden-Baden.

In Baden, a special microclimate is always ten degrees warmer than the rest of Germany, so while going around Berlin November heavy clouds, there was a soft Indian summer. The room was waiting for me a welcome fruit basket, peaceful views of the alley and Lichtentaler notification records for consultation with a physician.

Doctor, assess the extent of my inner destruction, was to appoint procedures and diet. Half an hour of calls, measurement and analysis I came already fully ready for anything.

I was prescribed a diet, lymphatic drainage, massage sensai with Kanebo products and facial treatment fitoaromaticheskuyu Sisley. “But most importantly, more sleep and walk – said the handsome young doctor (professor of nutrition seemed to me some other way). – More can read Turgenev. It is not in vain in Baden as lived – knew exactly what was good for the body and soul.

Right course

My ideas about dietary strongly transformed the hotel’s restaurants (one of them, Park-Restaurant, with a Michelin star): I eat what the doctor ordered, but suffered from a gastronomic and aesthetic pleasure.

I also swam in the pool, surrendered into the hands of masseurs and nothing bad thought. Returned home, losing weight by three kilograms and reaching enlightenment: it became obvious that the man with whom I spent the summer, it is not worthy of my experiences, and half of their responsibilities at work can be delegated to subordinates. Now I know that all the problems can be solved if spend enough time in the world with him. And I know where this place is perfect.
